The reality is that monoculture timber plantations have a negative impact on communities and biodiversity. These plantations are not a solution to climate change nor to biodiversity loss.

The “From monoculture to Forest plan” means we clear, step by step, a 7-9 year old monoculture teak plantation and replace it with 11 different tropical tree species, restoring to a complex ecosystem, with a wide variety of plants and wild animals.

NO MONOCULTURE

CACAO: We plant cacao trees in their natural surrounding, growing a high quality cacao beans. Cacao trees in a forest are also less sensible for pests. To control pests and diseases, we use organic pesticides only.

BUILDING TROPICAL FORESTS:

AgriForest Finance forests are planted on degraded and pasture land, which provide new living space for many animals and plants and improve the soil quality. The ecosystem will be restored forever.
